    Checking alternatives, it now seems very expensive. A Samsung Bar UFD, 256 GB with similar specs (MUF-256BE4/AM), costs $39.93.

    Yes, true and you can use CrystalDiskInfo to check to see if a device supports it:

    If you can use a UASP connection your USB access speeds will usually top out at around 1 Gbps instead of 0.5 Gpbs. I've confirmed this on numerous PCs and laptops recently myself.

    Must depend on the age of the USB and/or USB-to-PCIe chain involved. My older PCs (2017 and back) all show speeds in the 400-500 Mbps range; some of the newer ones (esp those with USB 3.1 or 3.2 and/or Thunderbolt support) show 900-1000 Mbps for the same external USB-attached NVMe drives. Thanks for making me clarify: it's always a learning experience.
    Hope you get things squared away to your satisfaction. Always find your posts interesting and often educational.

    I had it in a USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type A, port.
    I think it is expensive. For less than US$ 90 you can buy a 1T 2.5" SATA SSD and install on a US$16 USB 3.1 caddy
    BX500 1TB
    SATA III to USB3.1

    or
    US$66 + US$30
    M.2 2280 512GB PCIe
    M.2 NVMe SSD Enclosure, USB 3.1 Gen 2

    I'm thinking the speed difference ALSO depends on the chips used ON the device.
    This USB stick is the fastest one I could find, and I would think the marketing depts. would advertise the fastest speed achievable.
